At Zebra Technologies, we believe in doing a world of good, one community at a time. Our Community Relations programme's mission statement explains it best. "Improving our communities by providing a global programme with local implementation, where we live out our values by giving of our time and resources."
Zebra has three main focus areas for its Community Relations programme:
- Health and Human Services
We introduced our global programme in 2011, with an emphasis on volunteer efforts by employees around the world. A committee of employees from a variety of business units and locations developed our Community Relations programme and guidelines. Zebra has developed two very special employee volunteer programmes:
- Volunteer Paid Time Off. Eligible employees can get approval for up to eight hours of paid time off a quarter to volunteer at an eligible charitable organisation. Employees may take a maximum or 32 hours off in a year.
- Donations for Doers. When a Zebra employee volunteers at an eligible charitable organisation, Zebra will donate up to $200 to that organisation for every eight hours an employee volunteers (to a maximum of $800 per employee per year).
